When you’re looking to make improvements on your home, it can be daunting to think about where to start and who to call.
The time and work involved in finding a trustworthy, qualified tradesperson can even lead you to delay your home renovation project. Contractors, as well, spend a lot of time assessing potential jobs and working on quotes that are often not successful.
Lisa Tinney with Victoria’s Easy Job Quote says making it simple for people to connect with the right tradespeople can take a lot of the stress and anxiety out of the situation, for both sides.
“One of the biggest things we want to do is make it easier for the homeowner, so they don’t have to individually look up every contractor and do the due diligence themselves,” she says.
Do you know what questions to ask?
Not everyone has a background in construction or renovation work, which is where Easy Job Quote’s Project Developers can help. With a wealth of residential and commercial development experience, they take measurements, snap photos, talk about materials and discuss what you’re hoping to achieve for your home – all without the sales pressure that sometimes accompanies the planning.
“This is where you can have a safe, neutral conversation with someone who is experienced and is not there to try and sell you on the job,” Lisa says.
The Project Developer assembles a professional tender for the work, consults with the homeowner to finalize it, then makes it available to multiple previously vetted member-contractors who may provide a quote on the job. Then it’s up to you to select the bidder with whom you feel most comfortable.
Here’s more ways Easy Job Quote makes renovations easier:
- When selecting your contractor, you can access customer reviews for companies that bid on your job
- Contractors are all bidding on the exact same specifications for your job, making it an apples-to-apples scenario and streamlining your selection
- When you select a member contractor to do the work, a full, legal contract of your job is created, clearly outlining all terms stated and agreed upon
- As a member-contractor with Easy Job Quote, the jobs comes to you and you can bid on detailed, professionally prepared projects from the comfort of your office or home
“We want to help educate people and well as support them,” Lisa says. “We want this process to let you feel very comfortable in your home and be able to relax and sit back and enjoy your space.”
